Open Water Swimming

For those of you keen to do a bit of open water swimming in the summer, you are almost spoilt for choice.

Venues for training generally start opening up for the season during April and May and with the rapid growth in the sport there are plenty of open water races too. There are races to suit everyone with distances from 1⁄2 a mile to the marathon 10k and in a variety of water conditions from lakes, reservoirs, rivers and the sea.

Walden Tri 23-06-2013 (110)

We have pool time twice a week at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre for coached sessions. We cater for most standards but are unable to coach non-swimmers.

Sessions are held on:

Monday 20:30 - 22:00 We have half the pool during this session and therefore capacity to take up to 10 swimmers. The session is coached until 21:30 after which you can either get out or use the last half hour by extending your swim or doing a longer cool down.

Wednesday 20:00 - 21:00 For this session we have the whole pool, the session is coached for the whole hour but the pool reopens to the public at 21:00. During some sessions there may be the opportunity to be filmed whilst swimming and review this with a coach.

Please remember to arrive 15 minutes before the session starts to give yourself time to get changed and be in the water at 20:30 ready to start the session.

Note: there is no training on Bank Holidays.
